Both Mya and her manager have refuted the geyser of rumors surrounding an alleged affair between her and Jay Z since Beyoncé changed some lyrics in one of her songs last week. When someone on Instagram straight up asked her if she was Jay Z's "side chick" (ugh) she responded:
"Never did, never was, never will. Illegitimate, thirsty sources with no facts and that's the "media" for you—especially today. I play second do no one, pay my own bills, have my own label, own management company, rely on God only and respect myself & marriage way too much for nonsense. False rumors are crafted for ratings & numbers. And miserable, unhappy people need someone to judge to deter the attention away from their own misery and feel better about their miserable lives. If they did it to Jesus, they'll do it to anyone. God Bless."
Honestly? God bless the Jesus Defense. Her manager Mike Killmon told New York Daily News:
"Someone walked up and asked her about it while she was accepting an award at a church…At first it was just ridiculous, but then some die-hard fans start making threats. She really couldn't care less about the rumors, but she wanted to set the record straight when the after-effects started to become troublesome."
Well I'm glad that's cleared up! [NYDN]

Johansson sued for $69,302 and sought an injunction to keep the story from being translated or adapted to a movie. The court threw out the injunction and rewarded her $3,397. [Inquisitr]
There are two things that held Sigourney Weaver back in Hollywood: her height and her desire to have a family. See that was cool until I read this: "I feels sorry for women like Katharine Hepburn. She might have won four Academy Awards, but she never got to enjoy what it means to be a mother. I find that very sad." UH LOL YEAH. Pls take unwarranted pity on one of the greatest most outspoken actresses of all time. [Contact Music]
